5.0 out of 5 stars My Idea of Beautiful Music August 28, 2012
By Temz
Format:MP3 Music
I was thinking of the best way to describe this flawless album and came up with comparing it to an extremely joyous outing shared with your loved one that you just don't want to end. It is so clearly evident that Rapsody put her mind, heart and soul into her debut album and it shows. I struggled to pick a favourite song from the album because there isn't one I don't like, but if push comes to shove it would be the soulfully haunting Precious Wings.

Please pick up this album I guarantee you will not regret it and remember Culture over Everything!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Keeper: This one goes in the Hip Hop time capsule. September 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Rapsody is so real. This album speaks volumes from start to finish. I have nothing but respect for any Hip Hop artist who encourages women to think instead of blink and tells our young men to build instead of kill. This was on point musically (big fat S/O to 9th Wonder)and lyrically. And the album cover is dope! The features: Mac Miller, Raheem Devaughn, Big Rube and Childish Gambino are all awesome compliments to her album. However, it would be nice to get a Lupe or Phil Ade feature on the next album ;)

1 line review: One of the best albums I've heard in a long time.
Most replayed tracks on the iPod: Kinda Love, Non-fiction, Motivation & Good Good Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rapsody - The Idea Of Beautiful Review September 15, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is dope. From start to finish, every song is great. In the nearly 3 weeks since I've bought it, I've played it in its entirety about 10-11 times and it's still as enjoyable as the first time. I recommend this for anyone who considers themselves a hip hop head.

Be sure to add this album by one of the most promising artist of 2013, hands down! You'll be happy you did so and i'm sure the cd will get lots of play time in your car stereo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - especially after the mixtapes December 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Rapsody. Her mixtapes (She got Game, Return of the -Girl, Thank HER nowm For Everything) all all 4 1/2 to 5 stars, which is what makes this album so disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Music May 3, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
In this album you can tell she is a Lauryn Hill fan and this follows the feel and sound of "Miseducation.." but Rapsody adds her own unique sound and style to make this more Hip Hop than R&B, a more grittier album.
MC Lyte + Lauryn Hill = Rapsody
Lyte as a Rock + Miseducation... = The Idea of Beautiful

5.0 out of 5 stars Head and shoulders above all
She and the producer 9th Wonder did the darn thing on this album. Rapsody and Boog Brown are head and shoulders above all female rappers today. Dot com me, RapalbumoftheMonth.
